Company History

In 1997, Marco Buffetti made the decision to move from his home in beautiful Italy to the vibrant and exciting Southern California area. After a few years selling industrial paint application equipment, Marco decided to bring one of his favorite Italian brands to the USA. So in 1999, Marco started MK Sales™ with the intention of reselling Renner™ Coating Products to contacts he developed while living in Southern California.

Marco leased a 1,000 sq. ft. warehouse, imported a variety of Renner™ products, and began selling the premium Renner™ line of coating products. After 20 years, Marco has grown MK Sales™ ten fold, has moved the company into an expansive 10,000 sq. ft. distribution facility, and has grown MK Sales™ into one of the leading Renner™ Distributors in the world. MK Sales™ is currently the #1 distributor of Renner™ products in North America, and with the addition of the WaterBasedFinish.com website, is the most trusted source for Renner™ products online in the USA.

In 2016, MK Sales™ continued to grow and expanded by opening a second distribution facility in Houston, Texas. With the addition of this second distribution facility, MK Sales™ will be able to provide strategic logistical options to its clients nationwide. Not only will transit times be reduced in most cases, the additional space provided within our second distribution facility allows us to provide even more premium Renner products to our product list and client base.

Since day one, Marco knew what the best coating products in the market were, and for over 20 years has represented Renner™ and its line of premium products with enthusiasm through MK Sales™ and WaterBasedFinish.com.
